  • Notes 
    • All land and houses in Duxford left to his wife Agnes during her lifetime, provided they be kept in repair, after her death they are to be sold and proceeds divided up equally among his children. Also Agnes gets 1 quarter of wheat, 2 quarters of malt, 2 bullocks, 11 shillings in money and all the firewood. She keeps all his free land and copyhold land and half of the crop in the barn, as well as all the bedding and household stuff. However he stipulates that after her death all that she inherited from him should be divided up among his children in even portions. Two children are in his will, Robert and John. Robert gets the table and form in his hall, and all the pastures and woods in the parish of Chrishall (Essex) for ever. John is left 1 bullock plus first option on the goods in the sale. Robert also leaves 3 shillings 4 pence "to every one that I am grandfather to " and 2 bushels of barley to every one of his godchildren. There are a number of small bequests; his best coat and best doublet to Thomas Bewell, 11 shillings to Agnes Bewell and 6 shillings and 8 pence to Isabel Bewell, 4 bushels of rye to Katheryn Satrey. 2 shillings are left to John Wilson and 3 shillings 8 pence to Thomas Wilson, both of whom are described as "my servant". Finally he leaves 3 pound 6 shillings and 8 pence for prayers to be said in St John's church for his soul, the soul of Agnes and all christian souls for the space of ten years. Any residue of the estate after all this has been carried out is to be divided up equally among his children. His executors are named as his son Robert and Nicholas Raner who are left 2 shillings each for their pains. The will is witnessed by Robert Stith "my curett", John Swane, Thomas King, Nicholas Raner with others not named. Several years later his wife also left a will.
